A loan of $400 helped to fix his motorbike.

Edgar Juvenal's story

Edgar C. is 27 years old, married, and has a 2 year-old daughter. He works providing a passenger transport service with his motorbike. He used to work in a tuna factory but wanted to work for himself and make his own income.

Edgar currently works from Monday to Sunday, from 8.00am to 7.00pm. One of the difficulties he has during the winter is that the streets get damaged which negatively affects the transportation of passengers in the area.

Edgar's wife sells fish since her family are fish sellers in the area. Edgar will use his loan to fix his 'tricimoto' (a motorbike with a cabin in the back for transporting passengers). His goals are to improve his home and to provide his daughter with the best education possible.
